Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids

How to help children WANT to cooperate without yelling, bribes, threats or punishment

Are you tired of battling with your child? Do you wish you knew how to get your child cooperating without yelling and threats? Are you trying to find the sweet spot between spoiling and strict? Dr. Laura Markham gives you practical everyday strategies to help you raise a child who WANTS to cooperate, by working with your child rather than trying to manipulate or control. In this talk, you'll have a chance to ask questions about your own parenting, and you'll learn:

  • Why yelling, threats and punishment actually create more misbehavior.
  • How children develop self-discipline and learn to regulate their emotions.
  • Your secret weapon to get your child cooperating.
  • The most important parenting habit to create a peaceful home.
  • Strategies to handle your own strong emotions so you can help your child.
